Spicy Burger Relish
In my family, the grilling season never ends. I know that we can have some harsh weather in Wisconsin, however the grill is always near by, and the bag of charcoal is always stocked. With that said, whenever I take a poll with my family for what they want for dinner in the coming week, well, I should just say my boys, the answer is pretty much ‘burgers’. My daughter is not a burger loving girl, but the boys are, and at their age now, it is almost as though they eat 3 of them. No kidding. Stop it. They are eating me out of my house. As they are the typical plain cheese, or simply a burger and bacon kind of kids, I like to jazz mine up from time to time, and that’s when I decided to come up with a new relish. A spicy burger relish.
This relish not only goes great with burgers, but heck you can dip chips or veggies into it, or even layer it on your omelette in the morning. It’s good, really, really good.
Let’s get started.
- 4 whole pickled cherry bomb peppers, stems removed
- 1/2 cup of roasted red bell peppers
- 1 clove of garlic
- 6 cherry tomatoes tomatoes, chopped
- 1/2 tbsp red chili flakes
- generous pinch of dried oregano
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp salt, to taste
- generous pinch of cracked black pepper
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
Add all of these ingredients to a food processor and pulse until you have a thick salsa like consistency. Taste and season to your liking.
Cook your burgers to your desired temperature, and slather on the spicy burger relish.
The end result is really great. It’s everything you want in a great condiment, and the heat from the cherry bomb peppers, and the roasted bell peppers really make this relish shine. It’s almost everything you love in a Sriracha sauce, but a bit better. Yes, I said that. I hope you enjoy, and keep those grills going!
